As a sponsor of the 2024 Society of Environmental Journalists Conference, Pew brings nonpartisan, scientific expertise to bear on some of the world’s most pressing environmental issues. To help meet its policy goals, Pew partners with governments, Tribes, educational institutions, communities, and others, leveraging the best available science to find solutions.

Pew experts are always available to answer questions and share more about their projects. Here are some highlights of our work spanning the globe.

Energy modernization

Pew works with state and federal policymakers throughout the U.S. to advance the nation’s transition to electric vehicles, build a clean and reliable electric grid, and expand renewable energy solutions, such as offshore wind.

Northeast U.S.

Pew, founded in Philadelphia in 1948, has worked on environmental issues in the Northeast region for decades. Today, efforts in the region include expanding oyster aquaculture to improve conditions in the wild, partnering with the military on climate change policies and related projects, and establishing National Estuarine Research Reserves.

U.S.-wide

Pew advances plans and policies that help nature and communities build climate resilience. We apply these approaches in collaboration with communities, Tribes, governments, and others in conservation projects tailored to help wildlife, habitats, and people thrive on a changing planet.
